CDT Endorse Key Findings of Internet Safety Technical Task Force

The Internet Safety Technical Task Force, of which CDT was a member, issued its final report today, concluding that risks to minors in social networks are far less, and different, than media hype and public perception suggest. CDT endorses the report and strongly agrees with its conclusion that “age verification” technology does not address the actual risks (such as cyberbullying) that kids face online. The report also concludes more broadly that that lawmakers should not impose any technical mandates on social networks.
